“Why?” Three Letters To The Most Complicated Question…
It’s a one-word and incredibly complex question we all ask. It’s a question we never stop asking, all the way until the end of our life.
“Why? Why did this happen? Why would they do that to me? Why couldn’t I get what I wanted?”
Every human being asks why. It begins when we are toddlers and carries on throughout our lives. But for those of us who live by faith in a God that we cannot see, hear, or touch, the question becomes even more profound. “Why would God allow this to happen? Why would God not allow that to happen? Why didn’t God stop me?”
I am deeply persuaded that the way we answer the question, “Is God sovereign?” When the Bible teaches that God is sovereign, what does that mean?
Here’s a brief definition: God is in absolute control of his world and everything that happens, without any gaps, limits, interference, or thwarting of his rule.
“I know that you can do anything, and no one can stop you.” (Job 42:2)
